Bay Village Foundation hosts annual Memorial Day ceremony

The Bay Village Foundation will host its 17th annual ceremony to install and dedicate permanent bronze plaques on Memorial Day. The ceremony will take place in under the tent in Cahoon Park North, across the street from the Gazebo, at approximately 10:30 a.m., immediately following the Memorial Day Veterans Service.

Program chairman Fred Drenkhan announced that TV personalities Beth and Fred McLeod will emcee the program. The Bay High Honors Quintet will play before and during the program. BHS student vocal soloist, Natalie Surdy, will also perform. Three deserving students will be awarded scholarships and several volunteer groups will receive grants. This sharing of funds would not be possible without the generosity of Bay Village residents.

The Bay Village Foundation plaque program was established as a way for families and friends to give enduring recognition to Bay citizens in one central place. Donors that contribute at the level of $2,500 or more may request a plaque to honor the life work of Bay Village residents living or dead.
